This is the sound of a cafeteria in the Divinity school. During the lunch hour, many conversations are occuring while occupants are sitting at long, narrow 8-person tables. The close proximity in which these discussions take place can still be heard as some get up to bus their plates and silverware before parting ways. Similar to the Divinity Cafe, hospital cafeterias are filled with a diverse array of personnel: physicians, nurses, other healthcare staff, patients, and families. These various groups might coexist in the same place, but they might bus their trays before ever intermingling. However, the shared eating space can still remind us of the communal aspects of healthcare.
